It has been 4 months since we started our homeschooling journey. We have had amazing days, we have had tough days and we have had normal days.
I have always dreamed about homeschooling my boys, but never thought it would be an option, being a working mom and business owner. But God prepared the way, closed doors and opened others and here we are.
My decision to homeschool was based on a couple of aspects. Firstly, we have a calling to the Netherlands’s and we felt like this calling was something that will happen soon-ish. Within a couple of years. I wanted to be able to prepare my boys for the transition. We know that homeschooling will just be for a season though. We will not be able to continue in Europe as they do not allow homeschooling there.
At this point, I am more interested in my children’s character than their academical progress. I have nothing against schools, but in this season, I choose to pour into my boys and set them up with a strong foundation.
I had a realization a couple of months ago, that my yes to something is a no to something else. In other words I needed to start prioritizing. Time is so precious and we need to make conscious decisions to water where we want to see fruit. I chose in this season, to sow into my children and to not only build into them academically but spiritually and mentally as well.
This season is definitely not the easiest, as it comes with many financial constraints. This is the first time in 11 years that I do not have a steady income and I am fully reliant on my hubby. It is teaching me to me dependent on him, and even more dependent on our Father in Heaven, as He is ultimately our Provider and Sustainer.
Please, this blog post is not to convert anyone into homeschooling. It is about our journey and what God wants from us in this season.
I don’t have it all together and don’t know all the homeschooling jargon and lingo yet. I am still learning as we go along. But it has been so much fun. And I am so grateful to Luwellan and God for allowing me this amazing privilege.
Until next time mommies,
